The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types. Over the period of maturation it is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill European oak sherry cask. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt ~ the traditional casks soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.
On the nose the Balvenie 12 year old is sweet and fruity with Oloroso sherry notes and layers of honey and vanilla. The palate is smooth and mellow which beautifully combines flavours of nutty sweetness, cinnamon, spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry.
